Install Polish Blood ICS 4.0.4 ROM on Sony LWW WT19i
Many WT19i users have been asking in various forums as to when Sony’s official ICS update is available for this particular device. But nothing is fixed in this regards. Sony has not declared any date for official ICS on WT19i. But there is no need to worry. There are many developers who have dedicated their knowledge and efforts towards useful Android devices like Sony’s Live with Walkman WT19i. And as a result of this we got a final product as an amazing ROM called as Polish Blood ROM for Live with Walkman. We are thankful to XDA developer ZduneX25 who shared this AOSP ICS ROM for WT19i with us.
Details of this new ROM:
Polish Blood ROM is a complete AOSP ROM and thus you won’t come across anything like CM or AOKP. Thus theme addition, custom lock screen or any such thing won’t be possible. But with this ROM you can get 240 MB of free RAM without any issues. You won’t even require task killer on the board. You will be able to download this amazing ROM from the link given at the end of the post.
